Not really, because the core architecture performance difference is minimal. Faster video converting and gaming ability will be benefited by a higher end graphics card.

it appears it will perform much better. take a read at:
Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition Review
some of the benchmarks are of the 990x overclocked.

There's really no point of upgrading though, you have a system that won't need to be upgraded for another 5 years.

in everyday use, no.
for media encoding, yes.
gaming, no.
overclocking, yes.

its up to you and if it is worth what you will be paying for it.

Barely any performance difference in media encoding.

Save that money and put it to electric bills.
